DNP Sony shrinks the superzoom with 30x lensequipped Cybershot HX50V

There exists a type of photographer who can’t quite get by with a pocketable compact, but also hesitates to commit to a full-size (and pricey) DSLR rig. This shooter is all too familiar with the superzoom — and Sony’s latest 30x model may just offer the perfect excuse for an upgrade. The 9.6-ounce device has earned the title of “world’s smallest and lightest 30x optical zoom camera,” which, judging by its spec sheet, is quite an achievement. There’s a 24-720mm SteadyShot-equipped optical zoom lens, a 20.4-megapixel 1/2.3-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor, a 921k-dot 3-inch LCD, 1080/60p video capture, a top sensitivity of ISO 12,800 and a battery that’s rated for up to 400 shots. As you may have noticed from the image above, there’s also a dedicated mode dial, exposure-compensation control and a full-size hot shoe. You can pick up Sony’s Cyber-shot HX50V next month for $449, or check it out right now in the gallery just below.
